McKenna's International Review Magazine - Fall 2015
INTERNATIONAL REVIEW is my 24-page glossy, printed
magazine distributed to over 1600 law firm chairs and managing partners
throughout North America.
start with some prescriptive counsel on how your industry groups need to better
Industry Dynamics in order to be successful, and then continue with a
reminder of how you need to Schedule Time For Strategic Thinking
as it could arguably be the most important activity in your leadership role.
I have never been a fan of “branding” and watched over the years as numerous
law firms have wasted incredible monetary resources in various expensive
advertising experiments, I am nevertheless going to stick my neck out and
suggest that The Value In Developing A Leadership Brand is there for every
firm leader to employ.
Pages 12 and 13 are
intended to introduce you to my newest work, The Changing of The Guard:
Selecting Your Next Firm Leader, and How New Managing Partners Can
Avoid Being Blindsided is a related one-on-one interview with the
Editor of Managing Partner Magazine.
How Effective Leaders Delegate has its origins in a survey that I send out
to new managing partners, after their First 100 Days (see back cover) inquiring
about their most unexpected challenges and the last piece, Why Law Firms Need Non-Executive
Directors is included to provoke your thinking about a trend that has
been paying dividends for UK and Australian law firms for a few years now.
As always, I sincerely hope that you find some practical
ideas, tips and techniques here that you can put to use immediately.
Please send me your observations, critiques, comments and suggestions with
respect to any of these articles.
